CURRIER & IVES FINALS SET FOR MAY 29 AND 30, AT LADBROKE AT THE MEADOWS

 MEADOW LANDS, Pa., May 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The Currier & Ives Finals are set for Saturday, May 29, and Sunday, May 30, at Ladbroke at The Meadows, it was announced today.
 Owner Robert Key of Leechburg, Pa., could have two very big nights, since he has a colt who could win the Open Trot on Saturday, and a filly who is the likely favorite on Sunday night, a Meadows spokesman said.
 Nine 3-year-old colts are slated to go postward in the Saturday Currier & Ives Open Trot. American Winner, who won his elimination round last week, is hampered by post position eight this week, the spokesman said. Owned by Key and John B. Glesmann of New Jersey, American Winner has three wins in five starts this season and earnings of $104,464. Trained by Steve Bush and driven by Doug Snyder, American Winner could get his most competition from Kramer Cash and Per Eriksson, who has post position three, the spokesman said. Kramer Cash won his elimination round. Also winning an elimination was Thirty Two and Dave Palone. Thirty Two has the seven hole this week. The final will go for $83,910.
 Of the nine fillies going to the gate on Sunday night, the favorites will be Treasure Her and Ultimate Goal, the spokesman said. Treasure Her will have the rail for the Key and Glesmann ownership. Trained by Ben Wood and driven by Dick Stillings, Treasure Her has made two starts this season, and has won them both. She earned more than $240,000 as a 2-year-old. She is likely to be the favorite on Sunday night, the spokesman said. She won her elimination race on Sunday, May 23, in 2:00.3. However, Ultimate Goal, locally trained by Randy Bendis of Bridgeville, Pa., could prove very good competition for Treasure Her, the spokesman said. Ultimate Goal, owned by Durwood Roller of Michigan, trotted away to victory in the elimination last Sunday night in 1:59.4 for driver Palone. As a 2-year-old, Ultimate Goal earned $114,258. She also finished third in the Breeders Crown last year. A bit more of a longshot in the nine horse field is expected to be Leggy Hanover, who has the nine hole on Sunday evening. The post position should be a real problem for the Altmeyer Stable-trained filly, the spokesman said. Leggy Hanover won her elimination round on Sunday.
 Post time on Saturday at The Meadows is 7:30 p.m., and 6:30 p.m., on Sunday. There will also be a special holiday race card on Memorial Day at 1 p.m.
